How did MGK and Megan Fox meet?
Back in March 2020, right before the pandemic caused the world to temporarily shut down, Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker) and Megan Fox met on the set of indie thriller, Midnight In The Switchgrass.
Although production was halted due to COVID-19, sources allege that the two managed to still keep in touch. (The film was released in July 2021.)
"My Bloody Valentine": Megan Fox MGK video
Two months later—following paparazzi photos and news about the divorce between Megan Fox and her husband of a decade, Brian Austin Green of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame—the actress made a sultry appearance in MGK's "My Bloody Valentine" music video.
One month later in June 2020, the rocker-rapper posted a tweet with the song's lyrics, "I'm calling you girlfriend, what the f***" and then proceeded to add that life was imitating art. That sounds about right!
“i’m calling you girlfriend, what the fuck”life imitated art on that one. ❤️🔪June 15, 2020
How long have Megan Fox and MGK been together?
In a July 2020 interview with Give Them La La...with Randall (opens in new tab), the Jennifer's Body actress spoke candidly about producer Randall Emmett's decision to cast Machine Gun Kelly in the Midnight In The Switchgrass movie.
"I was like, 'Who is going to play this role?' And he was like, 'Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly,' and immediately, I was like, 'Uh oh,'" Fox said.
"I knew, I could feel that some wild s*** was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn't yet sure what," she added. "I just felt it like, deep in my soul that something was going to come from that."
In addition to podcast reveals, the two have been flaunting their relationship on social media since summer 2020. From Fox rocking out to her beau's songs to sweet Instagram captions ("Achingly Beautiful Boy...My heart is yours"), these two have not been shy about giving fans a glimpse into their romance.
In their first public appearance together, Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox attended the American Music Awards back in November 2020.
MGK and Megan Fox: Blood vial necklace
In 2021 after an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the rock star admitted that Fox sent him a parting gift before leaving for a movie role—a necklace containing her blood.
“Some people give, like, a handkerchief to their partner or whatever,” he said. “She gave me her DNA.”
Well, he did say she was his "Bloody Valentine," if you recall!
Did MGK meet Megan Fox's kids?
Sources revealed to US Weekly (opens in new tab) that Machine Gun Kelly met Megan Fox's children in September 2020. The actress shares Noah, age 7, Bodhi, age 6, and Journey, age 4 with her ex-husband.
However, word has not gotten out whether or not Fox has met MGK's daughter, 11-year-old Casie Colson Baker, who the musician had with former partner Emma Cannon when he was 18 years old. (Though it's likely she has, given the way things are progressing.)
Billboard Music Awards 2021 appearance
In May 2021, the two lovebirds made headlines for attending the Billboard Music Awards together, where Machine Gun Kelly's new tongue tattoo—which turned his licker entirely black—also made an appearance. How do we know about the new tat? Because the two were seen smooching up a storm.
In a lengthy interview for Nylon (opens in new tab), Fox was quoted alongside her boyfriend and noted: "The intensity of merging with him is just overwhelming, and the threat it poses is so powerful but so beautiful that you have no choice to surrender with reverence and with gratitude."
The VMAS 2021 Appearance
The couple seems to be going from strength to strength as they attended the 2021 VMA’s together in September. Megan took to Instagram to share some snaps of the night, where they were true couple goals in sort of matching glittery outfits.
MGK wore a dazzling red glittery suit while Megan looked incredible in a shimmering Thierry Mugler ‘naked dress’ paired with a bedazzled g-string. She captioned the post: "Daddy’s gonna win a VMA."
Fans cannot get enough of her dress, many are already calling it an iconic red carpet moment and are naming them the ‘hottest couple’ ever.
She also appeared on stage alongside Kourtney Kardashian to introduce MGK's performance with Travis Baker (Kourtney's boo, of course), at which point the ladies called their 'future baby daddies'. New additions on the way?
MGK and Megan Fox engaged: January 2022
After months of engagement rumors, the couple made it official on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Fox announced the next step of their relationship on her Instagram, posting a video of Kelly proposing on bended knee beneath a banyan tree that played a significant role at the beginning of their courtship.
Fox captioned the post: "In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma."
"Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him," she continued. "And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes."
The actress capped off the caption in true MGK/Megan Fox fashion, saying: "…and then we drank each other’s blood." Because of course they did. Congrats to the happy couple!
MGK also shared a video to his Instagram, revealing the engagement ring he had designed for her. The ring features two bands with each other their birthstones, his a diamond and Megan's an emerald.
MGK and Megan welcome a new member to their family: March 2022
No, we're not talking about baby news here, but pet news! The couple has just adopted the cutest little kitten together—they're really just embodying couple goals right now.
MGK took to Instagram to introduce fans to the newest and fluffiest member of their family. He captioned the post: "welcome Whiskey to the gang XX 🔪❤️" alongside a carousel of pictures of Whiskey.
In the first, Whiskey was caught doing a big, adorable yawn and the rest saw both MGK and Megan cuddling the new kitten—which appears to be a Savannah cat.
Leave it to these two to adopt the biggest domestic cat you can get!
How old is MGK? How old is Megan Fox?
The age difference between MGK and Megan Fox is only four years: Machine Gun Kelly is 31 years old, while Megan Fox is 35.
It's not Fox's first romance with an age difference, however. Her ex-husband Brian Austin Green is 13 years her senior. They met on the set of the TV show Hope & Faith when she was 18 years old and he was 30.
Megan Fox exes: Who has she dated?
Prior to her whirlwind romance with Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox has been seen with other famous faces over the years. After meeting in 2004, Fox and Brian Austin Green became engaged in 2006 but broke it off in 2009. A year later, they reconciled and became engaged again in June 2010, getting married in Hawaii two weeks later.
They welcomed two children between 2010 and 2015, but that year, Fox filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences before finding out that she was pregnant with their third child. They reconciled again but officially split in 2019, with Fox filing for divorce in November 2020.
Early on in her career, Fox was often seen out and about with 7th Heaven actor David Gallagher, but that relationship reportedly fizzled in 2004. She also dated her Transformers costar, Shia LaBeouf, during one of her break-up periods with Green.
